Celly Ruiz from the Class of 2013 was named to the NAIA All-American team as an Honorable Mention selection. Celly started her college career at Santiago Canyon, helping her team to the Conference title and a spot in the California State finals.
She then moved on to Point University in Atlanta. In her three seasons, Celly led the SkyHawks to post-season playoffs, helping a struggling program to winning records. She finished her career with 35 goals and 11 assists, and ranks as the PU’s 2nd leading career scorer. She is on course to graduate Fall 2017.
Celly captained the Lady Jags during her senior season and led the team to two CIF berths. She finished her O High career with 57 goals and 24 assists, record which were broken this season by senior captains Sam Nieves (67 goals) and Vanessa Colin (31) during the team’s CIF season.
Celly is the first Lady Jag soccer player to play college soccer at a four-year school and the first to earn national recognition. Congratulations, Celly.
